  • Notes 
    • John M., son of the late Gideon and Susanna Mast Stoltzfus, was born in Lancaster Co., Pa., Oct. 10, 1862; fell asleep peacefully at his home near Atglen, Pa., Feb. 23, 1945; aged 82 y. 4 m. 13 d. His departure was sudden, due to heart attack on Feb. 22. In early youth he accepted Christ and remained faithful until death. On Oct. 6, 1889, he was ordained to the ministry by his father at the Millwood A.M. Church, near Gap, Pa., of which he was a member. His last sermon was delivered at the Parkesburg Mission on Feb. 11 (text, Ps. 112). For the past four years he could not see to read the Bible but had a good memory. On Dec. 27, 1887, he was united in marriage to Lizzie Neuhouser, who preceded him in death April 13, 1937. To this union ten children were born. Two daughters (Ada N., wife of Joseph King, and an infant, Esther) preceded him in death. He leaves 8 children (Joseph H., Gap, Pa.; Samuel, Atglen, Pa.; Aaron, Parkesburg, Pa.; Lydia, wife of Isaac Mast, Christiana, Pa.; John, Parkesburg, Pa.; Elam, Atglen, Pa.; Henry, Parkesburg, Pa.; and Frank, Coatesville, Pa.), 37 grandchildren, one sister (Lizzie Zook, Gap, Pa.), one brother (Jacob P., Gap, Pa.), and many friends. He gave many good admonitions to the church and his family, which will not soon be forgotten. He was deeply concerned for the welfare of the rising generation. He expressed his readiness to go when the Lord should call him. Funeral services were held Feb. 28, at the home in charge of Leroy Stoltzfus and at the Millwood Church by John S. Mast and John A. Kennel. Interment was made in the adjoining cemetery
